Suncoast May 2016 Newsletter

Suncoast chapter members volunteered in observance of MLK Day. This was a day of fun, food and face painting for the foster children currently staying at the Salvation Army Sallie House located in St Petersburg, FL. Members handed out food (Pizza, Sub’s, Cotton Candy, Popcorn and Snow-Cones) and drinks, were safety observers for a Bouncy House, Slide/maze and Boxing/Jousting ring. All of the children had nothing but smiles and were so thankful for the festive day.
